Sheriff Joe Is Keeping the Birther Dream Alive

The Tea Party's very own Sheriff Joe Arpaio — famous for his pink panty fetish and for leading a department full of human traffickers — on Wednesday night met with "more than 325 people" (!) who fear that Barack Obama will try to run on 2012 ballots in Arizona's Maricopa County using a fake birth certificate. Oh yes.

The Surprise Tea Party Patriots™ handed Sheriff Joe a petition with 242 signatures. Joe said he'll "probe" the issue (with tax payer's money), and keep Maricopa County free of forged document-wielding illegal aliens. Here's part of the petition, via World Net Daily's star reporter Jerome Corsi:

Reportedly, several experts have declared the document to be a forgery. Reportedly, the file number may be out of sequence; "THE" appears to be misspelled as "TXE" in the State Registrar's stamp; there appears to be a "smiley face" in the "A" in the Alvin T. Onaka, State Registrar stamp; reportedly the document has computer generated, multiple layers and is not a copy of a single layered document; font types appear to vary throughout the document, reportedly, not possible with a vintage 1961 mechanical typewriter.

While we're on the subject of Arizona and undesirables, wouldn't it be cheaper to just build a border fence around Maricopa County?
